    How long have you had it? Did you get it from a pet store or from a previous owner? I don't think there's any sure way to tell how old it is. In the wild they can get to be around 28 kg, but in captivity they don't usually get that big because of environment constraints.

    They can be different dimensions but run about 120 inches wide, 50 inches deep and 40 inches accross --- there are various sizes though.
